Very Rare Antique Tantric Himalayan Crystal Kapala. Semi-Precious Stones. Tibetan Silver. Nepal / Tibet.
Master quality tantric kapala. Bowl is pure Himalayan crystal. Handcarved metal (silver/nickel composite) surroundings are a wonder of human craftsmanship. The carvings and many diverse semi-precious stones make this a phenomenal piece of art.
This is the second one I have acquired of this quality and makeup. The first has sold and I did not think I would find another…. ever.
Created in the Kathmandu Valley where Newar skilled carvers and craftsman have produced metalwork like this for centuries. This piece was found in a private home (estate). This piece is AT LEAST from the 1930s. It comes in 4 parts.
Rare? Try to find this quality for less than $5,500 USD. The religious and aesthetic value is extremely high.
For the Very Serious Collector.
This RARE piece has SOLD. Thank you C.R. !
